|Ice packs in the winter = very cold|
Then, my wound started bleeding. Lots. Tons. Saturating the bandage, sheets, bed - it was bad. I called the nurse, who rolled me on my side and applied pressure. We finally got it under control, but it took a long time, so it was 6pm before we were discharged. I had two nurses during that time, and they were both so sweet and skillful! Definitely getting compliment calls tomorrow.
At home, I struggled through the muddy construction on our street, trying to remember to use my LEFT foot this time! I was used to using the right! and changed into the only thing that could fit over my very swollen leg (boy shorts and knee socks... hence the limited photos). The swelling is terrible this time!
I also have a bit of pain, bad enough to take a naproxen and an acetaminophen.
It seems like it's mostly leg pain, maybe some damage from being in traction.
I plan on icing through the weekend to get the swelling down and hopefully will feel better tomorrow.
